 Upper Esk Valley Index

20. Glaisdale Open Gardens June 2008 and June 2009 and hopefully in 2010 date?

I'll let the pictures speak for themselves, but tremendous thanks to all those great gardeners (and scarecrow builders!) whose tremendous efforts enable us all to enjoy their creativity and help raise money for good causes.

The lovely Esk Valley settings of these gardens are an extra pleasure in their own right so why not come along next June/July to visit them for yourselves - all are welcome!

PLEASE NOTE, we didn't visit all the gardens and the pictures are in order of visiting - a bit random at times!


The proceeds of the Glaisdale Open Gardens go to various good causes e.g. The Yorkshire and Great Northern Air Ambulance, local charities and other worthy projects.


Thorneywaite House and Limber View 2008 and 2009

John and Betty Hoggarth and John and Ria Hoggarth (Jnr)

A scarecrow welcomes you to the Hoggarth's 'Great Park' - some effort between them to create this photosynthesis empire!

(however, the dog was bored by the whole thing!)

Spiderman should keep the rabbits away from the vegetables!


High Brock Rigg 2009

Stephen and Audrey Hoggarth

An extensive landscaping project including vegetable plots, flower beds, meadows and wildlife pond.


The Old vicarage Garth 2009

Tommy and Jean Lister

This was a major very successful reclamation-restoration garden project on this slope down to the church.


Downe Cottage 2009

Bill and Kath Walsh

The flowers by the back kitchen door stole this show!


Underhill Cottage 2009

Peter and Kath Webb

Lots of variety including a water feature as well as flowers and shrubs.


Scarecrows galore!

The 'Son of a Gun' was just across the road from the band - make sure you play in tune guys!

The North Skelton Band provided music outside the Robinson Institute where you can get excellent refreshments!

PLEASE give a donation to this self-financing band.

Jeanne Duchene

An amazingly beautiful compact garden.


Park View 2009

Mr and Mrs C Featherstone

Well you need em' caged or they will eat all the lovely flowers on display!


No 1 Anglers Quarters 2008

The Pierce's

A lovely fernery and a bog garden at the lower end of this sloping garden.


Alder House, Underhill 2008

Mr and Mrs W Hodgson

Well 'engineered' steep sloped gardening! - but the terracing allows a multitude of different plants to grow and be seen in one glance!


The Cottage 2008

Mr and Mrs G Heron

We loved the way the flowers grow between the flagstones!


Bracken-Hurst Stables 2008

Mr and Mrs Gray
